Obadiah 1:20-21 NIV 2011

This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan will possess the land as far as Zarephath; the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad will possess the towns of the Negev. Delivers will go up on Mount Zion to govern the mountains of Esau. And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.

 

Obadiah was God’s servant called to offer His prophesies. Zarephath was a costal town located between Tyre and Sidon ruled by Ethbaal. Luke 4:26, “Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarepath in the region of Sidon.” God was with His people in the desert and was with them in Judah. God would judge the Edomites for their pride and hostility toward Judah. Obadiah 1:13, “You should not march through the gates of my people in the day of their disaster, nor gloat over them in their calamity.” God is the Lord our Savior.

 

Merriam Webster’s definition of savior 1: one that saves from danger or destruction 2: one who brings salvation; specifically capitalized JESUS. Ephesians 1:3 (KJV), “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Throughout the Old Testament we see God is Savior of His people. Jesus, God with skin on, came to save sinners. I’ve placed my faith in God. He is my Lord and Savior.

 

How does the Lord bless us daily?

 

God’s blessed through salvation,

S
